Statement

My work maps my stream of consciousness, asking big questions that have incomplete answers. Each piece is an attempt to process the exterior world through my internal lens. Universal truths surely reside somewhere inside and it’s just a matter of adjusting the perspective to discover clear answers.

I am fascinated by themes explored in ancient theatrical and religious literature, and by developments in cross-disciplinary science. Literary sources use metaphor to explore a wide range of topics while scientific research endeavors to find the source of the mystery. The work connects past and future asking the viewer to examine the origins of their own belief systems.
